I stayed in the Condor Hotel for one night. First the good stuff:
+ Hotel appeared new
+ Rooms were in good condition and clean
+ Free internet
+ The beds were comfortable and linen was crisp and clean
+ Front desk was helpful
And the not so good:
+ The breakfast really was not up to standard, with no dining area (apart from a couple of couches) and consisted of coffee, stale rolls, muffins, apples and cornflakes. I decided to skip it altogether.
+ The location is not great - the area around the hotel was not particularly easy on the eyes and there is nothing of interest around the hotel (that I could ascertain). The subway station is a fair distance from the hotel - I caught a taxi (no yellow cabs in Brooklyn - need to phone for taxi) to the Brooklyn Marriot and that set me back 14 USD with tip. If you intend to return to the hotel in the day, the cost of taxis will mount up and should be considered.
+ Wireless internet connection to my room on the 3rd floor was intermittent but was fine when it worked
+ My room contained 2 single beds which were very comfortable. However, I did find the beds to be quite short (and I am not tall)
+ I was disturbed in the night by people making a noise in the passageway
+ The building next to the hotel had a noisy extraction fan that started up just before 7am and the noise was distracting.
If I were visiting Manhattan again as a tourist I would rather spend a bit more and stay downtown - once the travelling costs are taken into account, there is not much in it anyway.
